Removing VapoRub from a Plastic Bowl

Category Dishes

This is a guide about removing VapoRub from a plastic bowl. Dawn dish soap or a long soak in vinegar and water may help clean the bowl. However, you may not want to reuse the bowl for food in the future. Plastic is very porous and you may be unable to clean the bowl thoroughly enough for it to be safe.

Pour small amount of Dawn liquid directly into bowl - spread it around on all surfaces and let site for 15-30 minutes - add small amount of water and rub with a scrubber of some sort (or stiff brush). Rinse thoroughly several times and check bowl for odor and feel. You can place this bowl in the sunshine and spray water several times an hour to finish the job.
There are other products (Soft Scrub, Bar Keepers Friend, both without bleach) but you should act quickly with these and not let stand for very long. Remember that plastic is very porous, so I recommend not using bleach to clean your container. Once bleach is used, plastic container stains will be worse and almost impossible to remove.

Regular soaking in vinegar and water will help to keep containers fresh and keep stains to a minimum.
